    here we got with the loser attitude. Adding players that might actually improve the team is the goal but you guys only want rookies to populate the roster .NO MORE ROOKIES, rockets need to use cap space to get some above average players. ROokie only teams are treadmill for yearssssssss.

    I don't know why Morey doesn't see it!! Too bad you're not our GM - we'd be back in championship contention ... Oh, by the way, the comma (",") goes before the space, not after. But besides that, I think you are on to something.

    Other than the fact that adding an 8th PF (with a history of attitude problems) to our young roster is probably a bad idea at this point, as well as the fact that there is no line of rational thinking that would lead one to believe that an undrafted rookie from Iona is the determining factor for a rockets' playoff birth, I ...well actually I can't agree with anything you said.

    Can we please be "uncompetitive" for at least one season so that we have a chance of getting a franchise player in the draft?

    Lol at this guy. Almost as funny as the thread-starter that suggest we acquire him.

    That would be one of the worst trades ever.

    this may be one of the worst possible situations for Blatche, next to teams like the Bobcats and the Hornets.
    You want him on a team with strong veteran leadership and no other projects.

    When you place a bet, the only smart thing to do is double down, unless new information necessitates a change.

    Morey placed his bet by not drafting for need, amnestying Scola, and letting Dragic walk after the Lowry trade. Nothing new has happened. So Morey should double down. Don't you dare say the name Dwight either, he was just the available superstar but there will be more, and one might already be on our roster (but definitely the means exist on our roster).

    Thus, the two moves he needs to make:
    1. Play the rookies.
    2. Evaluate the rookies.

    Rinse and repeat.

    This just might work! Blanche in the Rockets will be affected by heavy religious beliefs. Maybe The Lin&Lamb Religion Inc. can preach him a thing or two. You never know....

    I would definitely take him. He has talent and yes he is head case. Look at Bynum and McGee, propel still want them.

    No. We do not have a strong enough leader right now. Blatche needs Garnett to knock him around. He really needs Boston.

    Blanche would be the key to us winning a championship.

    Blanche is our secret weapon. She can tire out opposing rosters the night before a game.

    Really need to have a post limit before thread creation, nothing good ever comes from it. Blatche is not a good player, and locker room cancer. Machado probably can make the team, but us competitive with them? Unless you mean we compete for a win every game (which we do no matter who is on the roster) in an otherwise losing season, re-align your brain, because someone dropped you on your head and it clearly left the building.
